“How did the pandemic treat you?” Evaluation of Psychological Effects of COVID-19 Pandemic Study of the Center for Applied Neuroscience

For several months now, we have been asked to actively contribute to the management of the pandemic resulting from COVID-19. Since May 2020, the restrictive measures have been gradually lifted in order to return to normality.  At the same time, we musts implement protective measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, especially now that the rate of infection has been increasing.

The present study of the Center for Applied Neuroscience of the University of Cyprus takes place in order to evaluate the potential effects of the pandemic on mental health and quality of life. This is the second phase of the project that took place in April 2020. The results from the first phase were published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and you access the article here.

The survey is addressed to individuals over 18 years old. Participation is anonymous and voluntary. You are asked to answer an online questionnaire lasting 9-11 minutes. The research has been approved by the National Bioethics Committee of Cyprus (EEBK OP 2020.01.54.).

We look forward to the participation of both the University community and the wider community as well. Please feel free to forward this email to your personal and professional contacts in Cyprus and abroad. We would like to solicit a large number of participants so the data can provide important information to policy makers for the development of prevention, management and support systems.
